Twitter user RalphsValve alleged that the game will be “gritty and unrelenting” and even feature realistic gore that is dependent on how the enemy is killed. It’s possible that the characters will lose limbs and be aware of their injuries, placing pressure on wounds in an attempt to stop the bleeding, and call out to the player as they die.
Ew. The “Moral Compass” is a lot like the honour system in Red Dead Redemption 2, said RalphsValve, and specific moments as well as how the player reacts to them will change the course of the campaign. The game will also ground the player in the terror of the war on drugs with simulated responses to what they’re going through.

“Through out an ambush sequence where your patrol vehicle is under attack from hostile fire, the character your playing as is visibly shaken up: struggling to insert the magazine, trembling hands [sic],” described RalphsValve. And, weapon jams are a thing, though players will be able to recover the wasted bullet in the “realism” and campaign mode.

There’s a whole conversation that we could have about “realism” in a game where you come back to life when you die, but I’m going to leave that for now. Understandably, Activision has kept its cards close to its chest regarding this rumoured Call of Duty game, as it is focused on launching Vanguard in a few days time.
That being said, this flurry of information does line up with what we have heard about Modern Warfare 2 from leaker Tom Henderson and a report from Video Games Chronicle. Henderson stated that its codenamed is “Project Cortez”, a reference to the film Clear and Present Danger starring Harrison Ford. On the other hand, Video Games Chronicle added that it continues the story of the Modern Warfare soft reboot from 2019.
Both sources have been correct about Call of Duty announcements in the past, so we’re willing to follow this trail of breadcrumbs. However, Activision is in the midst of a lawsuit from the state of California which claims that the company fostered a toxic environment for its female employees.
